Kick off our Summer Reading Game with a Photo Scavenger Hunt! Race to photograph everything on the list in our after-hours library photo scavenger hunt! Use your phone to snap your pics, then show a librarian for credit! First team to complete the list will win a prize and raffle tickets for our Summer Reading Game Raffle!

Free and open to all rising 6th graders. Registration is required.

The video game tournament is heading to Old Saybrook! Join the brawl and go head to head with the Acton and Scranton Libraries in an ultimate Super Smash Bros Tournament! Old Saybrook won the Mario Kart tournament, but we think we can dethrone them and retake our title of Best-in-Consortia.

Free and open to all rising 6-12 grades. Registration is required. Spectators do not need to register to watch.

Please note that the tournament will be taking place at the Acton Public Library in Old Saybrook, CT.

Plant and care for the library’s native plant butterfly and pollinator garden!  Learn about the importance of native plants and how you can help.  Do crafts and participate in citizen science activities, where ordinary citizens/community members help scientists by gathering local data.  Help the library raise monarch caterpillars to be released as butterflies at the end of the summer. 

Adults, teens, and children are welcome, but children aged 8 and younger must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.  Please register.

Join Food Explorers for a hands on cooking program! You’ll be making your own dough to make Pizza Naan Breads. You’ll learn how to mix, knead and roll your dough into mini naan breads stuffed with cheese! Served with a side of marinara sauce.

Free and open to all rising 6-12 graders. Registration is required.
